I joined Justin Hull on “The Home Stretch” to chat about the NBA Draft, if the NBA should change the age players need to be to enter the draft, and potential NBA players in the NCAA Tournament.
McNeill and Cheel talked about Phil Jackson giving the New York Knicks hope, Carmelo Anthony not being given enough credit or respect, LeBron James putting on a clinic against Cleveland, Oklahoma City faltering at the wrong time, Brooklyn and Chicago being two teams Miami and Indiana won’t want to face in the playoffs and we vented about teams in the Western Conference getting the short end of the stick.
Just when it seemed like the 2014 NBA Trade Deadline would pass with a fizzle the Indiana Pacers dropped a bomb that might have changed the landscape in the Eastern Conference. McNeill and Cheel talked about Indiana’s monster trade, Brooklyn not caring about the luxury tax, the Cavaliers and Lakers not being logical, remorse for Thaddeus Young and bunch more.
I was able to join Ben Ennis tonight on The Fan 590 to chat about Dwane Casey’s future with the Toronto Raptors, if the team should trade Kyle Lowry, what appears to be a relatively easy stretch of games coming up for the Raptors and if Patrick Patterson should continue to start once Amir Johnson is healthy enough to return to the court.
Here’s audio from Dwane Casey, Patrick Patterson, Tyler Hansbrough, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan after Toronto’s 108-101 win over New Orleans.
This afternoon I was able to talk with Bill Walton and Luke Walton about romance, love, Valentine’s Day, all-star weekend and basketball.
McNeill and Cheel chat about Andrew Bynum’s expiring contract is traded for Luol Deng, Kevin Love ripping into his teammates through the media, the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors being on a hot streak, and Dennis Rodman’s epic meltdown in North Korea.
Cheel and McNeill talked about an article by Zach Lowe which informed fans that massive changes to the NBA Draft may be coming, the Titanic Division, how Andrew Bynum’s landing spot could have a ripple effect through the entire NBA, a plethora of injuries to all-star calibre players and some fun trade rumors that have been circulating on twitter and the web.
McNeill and Cheel talk about Portland’s hot start, which Eastern Conference team is the biggest mess, how San Antonio keeps rolling, changing the current format of the playoffs, if Anthony Davis is on the verge of getting stuck with the “fragile” label, and Allen Iverson getting his number retired.
I joined Justin Hull on “The Home Stretch” to talk about tanking, the Eastern Conference being so much weaker than the Western Conference, and Kobe Bryant’s two-year contract extension.
McNeill and Cheel talked about the great start Philadelphia has gotten off to, Indiana looking like the beasts of the East, both teams based out of New York being in trouble, not being sold on Houston due to their lack of perimeter defense, the Clippers being in a great groove offensively, Golden State being a bunch of fun to watch this season and a bunch of other topics.
And, as an added bonus, I’ve included some audio at the end of the Podcast of my chat with Ray Allen about his epic shot in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last season.
I joined Justin Hull on The Home Stretch to talk about what teams will meet in the NBA Finals this June, what teams will surprise fans and what teams are over-rated.
Cheel and McNeill recorded a Podcast to look at the main storylines in the Western Conference heading into this season. We talked about Kobe Bryant getting frustrated with Nick Young, how much longer the San Antonio Spurs can keep winning their battle against Father Time, if Russell Westbrook will be the same player after his knee issues and a host of other topics.
We end the Podcast with an interview with Corey Brewer who talks about getting a chance at redemption in Minnesota and why the Wolves are a sleeper pick to make noise this season.
